Displaced women, Land rights and violence in the context of the armed conflict: field testimonies of Nuba women in Sudan

The publication presents perspectives from a number of countries including Sudan reflecting the idea that women’s land, property and housing rights require treatment within a broad human rights framework and that women’s status and condition, as well as their experience of violence, is intimately connected with their ability to exercise fundamental socio-economic and cultural rights. The contribution from Sudan documents the interplay between rights to land and property (or lack thereof) and violence against women.
